This Tasmania Golf Package was planned for a group of 4 from Florida. These gentlemen had golfed most the world’s best golf courses and they wanted to explore a new area. Tasmania has quickly become a bucket list golf destination; this small island in Australia has 4 courses ranked among the world’s Top 100 Golf Courses. This quick getaway took them to some of these exceptional courses for an unforgettable golf adventure!
We started their Tasmania Golf Package at Barnbougle Dunes and Barnbougle Lost Farm, as these are two of the perennial favorite golf courses in Australia. They stayed onsite at Lost Farm Lodge and were able to play both courses, which are quite unique despite their close proximity.
The outward 9 at Barnbougle Dunes plays through a series of saddles that both shelter and direct play lines. The back 9 is more open but arguably more striking, with multiple panoramas of the course, adjoining the bay and nearby Bridport. The fairways are wider than those of more traditional courses. The true lines to the flags are from the corners of the fairways and the perfect position alters depending on the direction and strength of the wind, the position of the pin, and your standard as a player.
Lost Farm is remarkably different to The Dunes. Lost Farm features 20 holes, all of which are playable in any one round, and the course layout tracks along the coast and inland amongst sand dunes that are significantly steeper than those featured at The Dunes. The strategic bunkering and undulating greens combined with wide fairways make for a course that offers an exciting challenge for golfers of all abilities.
For their last day in Tasmania, they chartered a private jet to King Island so they could golf Cape Wickham Golf Course. The new kid on the block, Cape Wickham opened in 2015 and quickly rose to the top of the ranks in Australia, being named among the world’s Top 100 Golf Courses in its first year—and as one of the most remote golf courses in the world, it’s a bucket list course for many golfers. A diverse natural landscape of sand dunes, limestone outcrops, and coastal cliffs overlooking the Bass Strait makes for a challenging game with breathtaking ocean views.
After 3 days of exceptional golf at some of the world’s most spectacular golf courses, their private jet whisked them away to Melbourne, where they began their journey home.
